This short story is one of twelve medieval romances from the Lays of Marie de France. It tells the tale of the Bisclavret, a werewolf from the old days of Brittany. This is a story of secresy, betrayal, and perhaps even forbidden love - there has been much speculation that the werewolf in this story is an extended metaphor for homosexuality, and there may be more to his wife's rejection of him, and his deep bond with the king later on, than meets the eye.
